Notes/Commercial Description:
Brown Ale aged in used Pinot Noir barrels from local Sonoma County wineries. It is aged for about 12 months with sour cherries, brettanomyces, lactobacillus, and pediococcus added to each barrel. Flavors from the cherries, Pinot Noir and oak balance each other nicely with a little funk from the brett.

Pours a slightly Hazy burnt amber in color with a thin cream colored head.

Smell has a sour acidic aroma has a very faint malt backbone. Sour cherries and oak dominate the midsection and finish in the nose.

There is a big acidic sour flavor first to hit the palate and has some sweet grainy malt backing it up. Oak dryness and some red wine come in near the midsection and more tart acidity and oak in the finish.

Mouthfeel has nicely contrasting dry, sticky sour, and crisp characteristics to it. Moderate to high carbonation
